South Atlantic Basin[edit]

Until recently, it was unknown that tropical cyclones could form in the South Atlantic Ocean. In April 1991, however, a tropical storm affected Angola. In 2004, when a Category 2 hurricane impacted the province of Santa Catarina in Brazil[2], it was referred to as Hurricane/Cyclone Catarina . Six years later, a tropical storm formed and was nicknamed Anita. In 2011, the Brazilian navy devised a naming list. So far, 9 tropical and subtropical cyclones have been named from it.

Notes[edit]

  1. The 1846 Havana hurricane is thought to have reached Category 5 strength, but it can be debated since HURDAT was not kept back then.
  2. The 1924 Cuba hurricane was the first Category 5 hurricane. For other storms that reached that strength, see the article List of Category 5 Atlantic hurricanes.
  3. The 1949 Texas hurricane formed as an unnumbered tropical depression in the Eastern Pacific. At the same intensity, it moved into the Atlantic Basin. However, it was given the nickname “1949 Texas hurricane“ in the Atlantic when it affected Texas.
  1. This storm may have been extratropical instead of fully tropical.
